FIN 48 FOOTNOTE Effective January 1, 2009, API applied the 
guidance in the Financial Accounting Standards Board's (FASB) 
Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 740, Income Taxes, 
on the recognition and disclosure of uncertain tax positions 
FASB ASC 740 requires that a tax position be recognized or 
derecognlzed based on a more-likely-than-not threshold This 
applies to positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax 
return This application of this guidance had no impact on API's 
financial statements API does not believe its financial 
statements include any uncertain tax positions Prior to January 
1, 2009, API recorded a liability for income taxes when it 
believed that such an accrual was warranted based on current 
law or guidance from the appropriate taxing authorities API 
believes it is no longer subject to U S Federal, state and local 
income tax examinations by taxing authorities for years before 
2006
